Student to Student: Study Tips

by Home Page Staff - January 21, 2019

We’re back again with another college feature – this time with some study tips to help you stay on track this semester. First, treat your school schedule like a 9-5 job. Don’t go back to your room between classes. Hit up the library to stay in work mode so you can relax when you finally return to your room.

Use color to organize your notes by category. For example: Multi-colored pens, highlighters, and colored note cards can act as a memory aide. Have a different color for dates, people, definitions, places, quotes, important facts, questions, etc. Stick to that same color when making flash cards, highlighting in your textbook, and writing in your notes for each of those topics.

Study for 30-50 minutes at a time with a 10-minute break in between. Treat yo’ self. Oh! And try writing little songs to help you remember.
Something I find really helpful when I’m studying is if I teach the material to a friend or roommate I understand it better. Use a white board to explain it visually and verbally.

Quizlet is a life-saver. It’s free, and it allows you to make your own flashcards and learn them quickly using various methods – games, fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, practice quizzes, etc.

Study right before and immediately after class. This can help you refresh your memory from what was in previous classes, and keeps your brain engaged.

Discover your individual learning style. Do you like studying with others? Try forming a study group. Or if you’re like me and you get distracted in your dorm room? Have specific time in your schedule that you go to the library every day. In either situation, put your phone in airplane mode or shut it off to help you focus.

Re-write your class notes by hand, especially if you originally typed them out. There are a variety of studies that suggest handwriting can aid memory retention.
